Disneyland Band On The Road

Here's a sort of random oddity... from a slide that had turned intensely magenta, unfortunately. So I chose to turn it into a less painful sepia tone. Anyway, there's Vesey Walker and the Disneyland Band, but where the heck are they? Is that the Disneyland Hotel? What's the deal with that small stage in the background? Obviously they were waiting for some very important people.

Well, it turns out that this is from the opening of a Montgomery Ward's in Santa Ana. I wonder if Walt Disney was going to be there as some sort of "master of ceremonies"? Whatever the case may be, it was kind of fun finding this image.

Fun pic, Major! No more Montgomery Ward's...also no more Bullock's, Broadway, Robinson's or May Co....and soon no more Mervyn's. :(
